Sympathy and Surface

Plate 13 of Sullivan’s A System of Architectural Ornament According with a Philosophy of Man’s Powers.

Beginning with analysis, the ornamental plate was translated into several different media. First, visual data was extracted and graphed. Second, the digital model was constructed while developing techniques to three-dimensionally represent a noisy drawing. Finally, a CNC milled version was produced to complete the transformation from philosophical treatise to physical form.
